10 for ten

In honor of the ten month anniversary of our wait, here are ten fun facts:

  • There are said to be ten lost tribes of Israel
  • There are ten Commandments
  • Ten is the highest possible score in Olympic competition
  • There have been ten Star Trek theatrical films released
  • To reduce something by one-tenth is to decimate
  • Capricorn is the tenth sign of the Zodiac
  • The British Prime Minister lives at 10 Downing Street
  • There are ten provinces in Canada
  • Ten is the atomic number of neon
  • The Chinese word numeral for ten is 十, which resembles a cross

p.s. I am really struggling today with this (ever-increasing) wait...


  1. Congrats on 10 behind you and hopefully not that many more to go. Keep your head up because it will happen. Trust me, I thought it would never happen for us either, but Maisie is perfect for us.

    Just FYI, 10 Downing is where the Prime Minister is supposed to live, but the house was too small for the Blair family so they live at 11 Downing St. and the Exchequer lives at 10 Downing.

  2. Great post! Love all of those 10's!

  3. Hi Susan, Can you believe we have made it ten months? I am sure we are on the down side of the wait now. Lily Kate and Sophia Joy will be with us soon.

    Hang in there, I am with you. Check your mail in a few days.

    Love ya

  4. 10 months! Where is the time going? But why can't it go faster. I can't wait until we all finally meet out little ones.
    Here's hoping that the CCAA will speed up quickly!


  5. No kidding Wendy! It's actually closer to 11 now. I keep praying for a speed-up, but will settle for things staying as they are at least.

    all the best,
